Modern regional trains offer free WiFi, charging outlets, comfortable seats, and dining cars so that passengers can purchase snacks and meals during the trip. Some trains also have sleeping compartments. In addition to family coaches, some VY trains include travel coaches that are designed to accommodate families with children and are equipped with some additional amenities like playrooms and change tables in the bathrooms, as well as books and videos to keep them entertained.
The company was formed on 1 December 1996 by splitting the former Norwegian State Railways (1883-1996) into the Norwegian State Railways (NSB), the Norwegian National Rail Administration, and the Norwegian Railway Inspectorate. CargoNet was formed in 2002 to handle freight operations, and Mantena was formed to handle maintenance.

Services for long-distance electric passenger trains are provided on the Bergen Line, the Dovre Line, and the Sørland Line. On the four day trains (electric locomotives El18 and Class 7 coaches) traditional locomotive hauled trains are used. This line also offers a night train service with WLAB2 sleeping coaches. Between Trondheim and Bodo, the Nordland Line still uses diesel locomotives Di4 for regular passenger service, making it the only one still in use.
